Aus. Open Catch-Up: Round 1 - Djokovic deported; 'Slam' Raducanu shines; Kyrgios & The 'Suuui'; Murray's comeback epic and Alex de Minaur loses a shoe

In the latest episode of The Passing Shot, the tennis podcast by fans, Joel and Kim open up their Australian Open catch ups with a look back at Rounds 1 and 2 from Melbourne Park.

With Andy Murray battling through in 5 sets three years after practically announcing his retirement from tennis, and Emma Raducanu defeating fellow Grand Slam Champion Sloane Stephens in an topsy turvy affair,, there is plenty to celebrate for British fans down under despite Cam Norrie’s disappointing opening loss to Seb Korda.

From Nick Kyrgios’s box office entertainment, Alex de Minaur losing a shoe, Yastremska’s scoreline antics and former Champ Sofia Kenin falling at the first hurdle, Joel and Kim round up all the highlights from the first two days of play.

Joel and Kim also reflect on the culmination of the Djokovic deportation saga and what his lack of Covid-19 vaccine may mean for his season and career going forward.
